“It’s basic.” Ask most of the fishers why they like tenkara, and that is presumably the appropriate response you’ll get. That was my stock answer too for quite a while. However, the overthinker in me began to ask for what reason does “straightforward” = “great”?
All things considered, “basic” isn’t inherently great. On the off chance that my specialist discloses to me I need a basic medical procedure, that is great. In any case, in case I’m told the specialist who will perform it has a “basic” comprehension of how to do the methodology, that is terrible. In the main case, straightforward is great since it implies little hazard. In the second case, basic is terrible in light of the fact that it implies a high hazard.
So why in the world am I discussing such semantics?
To demonstrate a point– that effortlessness in itself isn’t the motivation behind why tenkara is great. The facts demonstrate that tenkara is basic, yet so what? For what reason is that great? Each fisher will presumably answer this diversely yet for me, the effortlessness of tenkara means productivity and that is the reason I believe it’s great. Give me a chance to clarify.
In ordinary fly angling, there’s a ton of angling anticipation custom. Notwithstanding the more drawn out apparatus time (tenkara can take as meager as 45 seconds), on the stream, you have a great deal of dramatization. False throwing, shooting line, stripping it back in, shooting it pull out once more, evolving flies, patching line, including a split shot or strike markers, modifying strike pointers, and so forth all limit the time your fly is quite the water. If your fly isn’t in the water, it won’t get a fish.
In any case, Tanuki Ninja-Tenkara Fly Fishing Rod avoids the unpredictability of the majority of this, which means you can angle more, complain less, and adjust in a flash. I can make a down-and-crosswise over jerking introduction and after that get the line and make an upstream dead float introduction with one movement– no bogus throwing. At that point, I can lift that and make a downstream dead float introduction. What’s more, from that point forward, lift it and complete a downstream swing or Leisenring Lift. You get the thought.
Essentially, tenkara enables me to quickly switch between incalculable methods and introductions with zero downtime. It’s straightforward, truly, yet that is not why I cherish it. I cherish it since that effortlessness bears me effectiveness and rhythm on the water.
